The latter question is not one that I have a great answer for.
This lost me here:

In some ways, both athletically and when it comes to smarts, he is very similar to Brady.
There has never been anything to suggest this. At best it's just wishful thinking.

I have no problem with anyone who wants to paint Mallett in a positive light. He has a ton of tools. But there is a lot of reaching going on around here. Mallett very well may turn into a star. But up to this point the only positives he has shown is that he has a huge frame, a huge arm, and he was able to efficiently run Petrino's power spread offense, which has somehow been confused as being a pro style offense just because they run the ball a lot.

Does Mallett appear to have the required skills to be an elite NFL QB? Yes. Does he also show traits that suggest he could be a bust? Yes.
